Grand Royal

Lovely classic cocktails are always appropriate for festive celebrations. A Grand Royal is a simple concoction that’s a bit more polished than the standard glass of champagne. There are several formulas that result in a good one but my favorite includes just a splash of Grand Marnier. It’s refreshing & lovely. Freshly squeezed citrus, vodka & gin are sometimes added to them with a bit of simple syrup for equally wonderful variations. Experiment if you so choose to create a signature sipper all your own.

How To Make A Simple Orange Rind Garnish

Oranges may be used in both sweet & savory foods pairing well with just about anything making them extremely versatile. When choosing them from produce bins, select fruit with a bright, uniform color. Pick them up & gently press them in your hand. They should feel firm with a slight give to them. The rind offers a beautiful garnish when entertaining & may be used to finish sides & entrees but it looks fantastic when perched on glass rims during the social hour.

The Technique

Create a small bar area to make custom creations & be certain to choose a coupe style glass for special champagne cocktails with vintage style. Zip a sharp vegetable peeler down the side of oranges to create 2-inch pieces of zest. Gently press it in half until it holds a creese. Place the rind on glass rims for a bright garnish just before passing.
